"Other users" defines you being online by activity"

What exactly constitutes activity?

As just having a page open in a browser does not seem to be sufficient to keep a user showing in both "Other Users" and therefore showing on the map.

    Requesting a page from the server.

    As the HTTP protocol is stateless, the server simply cannot tell whether you've kept the page open in the browser after having fetched it.

      almut That also answers some other questions, thank you.

      For example now I know how this could be done

      It's just a matter of loops!
